Orphan soda?

While I’m asking for help, anyone seen one of these? I dug many years ago at dump in Mena, Arkansas. Many examples but all broken but this one. Has been polished. Looks like crown top soda with tooled lip. Mold line stops at mid-neck. No marks on bottom. Have never found a comparable or any records of business on-line. Thanks for looking.

Thanks! I did just find a Facebook post from the Mena historical society identifying the manufacturer as being near Mena in 1905 through 1919. Guess it helps to keep looking.

Found it in my Arkansas bottle book. It shows to be very common with a 20-40$ value. I'm in fort smith. I'd love to see any bottles that you have from around here

WOW! That is incredible. I am just getting started and still trying to find an old dump in town to dig... I think I should throw in the towel though cause it's clear that you've already dug all the good bottles. Joking aside though, that is an amazing display of bottles.

I may have personally dug about 10 of these bottles. Everything else has been bought from antique malls, eBay, flea markets, garage sales, but mainly out of personal collections.
